As far as crafts go, the Mason Jar Foaming Soap Pump Tutorial from Life With Laura was wonderfully easy. The only thing I did differently was cut the hole in the lid small enough so that the pump just barely fit through. I was then able to apply a small amount of silicon glue around the bottom of the pump (under the lid) to seal up any gaps. I also used Krylon’s Hammered Metal spray paint. Pretty happy with the finished product and most importantly, it works perfectly with my homemade foaming soap! (few squeezes of Almond Dr. Bronner’s and water)
Bit of a tangent, but did you know that you don’t need to wash your hands with water when you use foaming soap? You just lather up with the foaming soap, rub it all over just like you would do with normal soap, and then rinse with water. You could probably decrease your hand washing water usage by 50%. Nice. I seriously must be the only person on this planet who didn’t know that!
Back to the mason jar, we need another dispenser in the bathroom but I think I might use a different container. The mason jar looks cute in kitchen but the bathroom needs something a bit more streamline and clean. I’ll get back to you on that.
